Couscous Recipe No 1.
I've been buying this make (and one other) of Couscous for nearly 40 years; ever since I moved south of the channel.
During all those 40 years, the back of the 'Regia' Couscous packet has ALWAYS offered its 'cut-out-n-keep' No 1 recipe for 'Couscous with Lamb and Vegetables'.
Is there a No 2 recipe? Did they simply scratch their beards after No 1? Maybe recipe No 1 was simply so good that they thought it unnecessary to offer a second! Maybe there was never any intention to offer a No 2 recipe, and it was all just a big scam to keep you buying; just in case (for 40 years?)!
The other major manufacturer of Couscous sold in France is 'Tipiak'; maybe I'll start to buy their packs again in hope of finding something different on the back!
IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY ..........

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
